A conversation about storms

"Mama, why are we watching this boring show all morning?"

"Because I want to find out about this big storm coming."

"Is it a potato?"

"No, it's not a potato...by the way, it's called TORNADO, not potato."

"Oh."

"It's a big, windy snow storm called a blizzard."

"Nooooo, mama.  That's silly.  That's a kind of small bug."

*think*....*think*...*think*...

"No, that's a lizard."

"Well, I still think it's going to be a potato."
